Russian Folk Drinking Song
Stinson Records was started by Russian-born Irving Prosky, who distributed Soviet and eastern European records in the US, and Communist party member Herbert Harris, who owned a record store in New York. There were twists and turns in their business, and after a particular split, Stinson ended up with a sizable amount of folk ad country records. Woody Guthrie's 'My Dusty Road' uses master recordings made under Stinson in 1944 that were lost, found decades after Guthrie's death, and released in 2009. [more about Stinson http://www.russian-records.com/categories.php?cat_id=269] This recording was most likely released in the 1940s. The name of this Russian folk song translates to 'I Love Vodka, I Love Beer'. Even without the lyrics translated, you can hear that these men are a couple of drinking buddies having fun. And if you're in Russia, you should definitely be enjoying the world-class vodka, or at least drinking something to stay warm. Here's a romantic Russian folk song called Korobushka or Korobeiniki, but it's best known as the theme song for the game Tetris. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bflfbR1i1Ds
